About Polar Night Jazz:
Polar Night Jazz is a festival with long and versatile history. The first time jazz was played in Kaamos (Polar Night) was in 1981. Thanks to Grand Old Man Kauko Launonen and a group of volunteers from Kaamosjazz Ry the festival has grown ever since. Mr. Launonen retired from his position in 2011 to give Inari–Saariselkä Tourism Ltd (former Northern Lapland Tourism Ltd) the leading role in developing the event and coordinating it with the concert venues in the region.
